Everyone wants long, full, fabulous eyelashes. Now, an FDA-approved product has been formulated to increase eyelash growth. With LATISSE®, our LaVida patients can now grow longer, fuller, darker lashes with this easy to apply, prescription treatment for enhancing eyelashes.
LATISSE® Grows Lashes Longer, Fuller and Darker
Available for purchase at our spa, LATISSE® solution is a once-nightly treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes. Then, gradually, the results come in. You may start to see more length in as little as 4 weeks and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks. It’s not an illusion of growth. It’s real lash growth. Contact us to learn more.
How LATISSE® Works
LATISSE® makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, LATISSE® is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase, and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase.
The History behind LATISSE®
LATISSE® was created by Allergan, a pharmaceutical leader with 60 years of eye care expertise. In 2001, Allergan developed a medicated eye drop to treat elevated intraocular pressure. Many patients using this medication also began to grow longer, fuller and darker lashes as a side effect. This led Allergan to study the medication’s active ingredient, bimatoprost, specifically for growing lashes. After a clinical trial, LATISSE® was approved by the FDA in December of 2008.
Your Eyelashes Will Experience Real Measurable Growth
LATISSE® works from the inside out. As the treatment progresses, you’ll first begin to see changes in length. Then, gradually, you’ll notice more thickness and darkness in your lashes. If you’re satisfied with your results by week eight, don’t stop there. Stick with the treatment. After week 16, you’ll see the full effect of LATISSE® solution — and so will others.
